Unafraid of getting ahead of itself, the Obama campaign has reportedly approached Illinois Rep. Rahm Emanuel about serving as President Obama’s chief of staff. Emanuel chaired the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee two years ago, where he earned raves for his fundraising and strategy. Plus, he has White House experience, having worked for Bill Clinton. Not one to be outdone in the cart-before-the-horse campaign, John McCain announced that he would bring Joe the Plumber to Washington with him. He was joking, we think.
